Goal Setting Steps

Set goals that motivate you

Choose SMART goals

  • Specific — well-defined goals.
  • Measurable — tie a specific amount etc. to your goals to provide a benchmark to measure yourself. For instance, I want to increase my commissioned sales by 10% this year.
  • Attainable — set goals that are attainable but not too easy. I want to make $1.00… though feasible, it doesn’t make you push yourself.
  • Relevant — pick goals that are relevant to what you want to achieve and keep you on the same path to achieving that goal. Don’t scatter yourself.
  • Time-Bound — Set a deadline and be specific. In two months, you wish to have a new job.
